Character descriptions are pretty common when casting for a TV show or movie, but the latest bit of casting news for FX's creeptastic American Horror Story shows just how wild the creators want to go in season two.

Actress Chloe Sevigny (Zodiac, American Psycho) is the latest addition for season two, playing "Shelly the Nymphomaniac," a major antagonist to Jessica Lange's character. We've seen a lot of character bios over the years, but that one takes the cake. According to Entertainment Weekly, the producers were such big fans of Sevigny that they wrote the role specifically for her.

Year two of the anthology horror series will be set in the past, at an East Coast institution for the criminally insane. If there were ever a setting with more creepy potential than the murder house of season one, that'd be it.

Season one players Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson are all scheduled to return in different roles. Sevigny joins Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine as a new addition for the second season.
